IK Multimedia Amplitube 4 raises the bar yet again for software-based guitar and bass tone and amp modeling. In this in-depth video tutorial series studio computer guru Todd Tatnall delivers deep exploration of this monster sounding amp plug-in suite!

After Todd explores the basics such as Installation and Loading the plug-in, he then covers the Presets. Then begins his coverage of the UI and the Input/Output bar. Next, he shows you around the Tuner Section and the Module/Rig Selector, including the extremely flexible Routing Options.

The next group of videos cover Modules in detail. In the Stomp Module video, Todd demonstrates How to Browse, Load, and work with the plethora of included Stompboxes and Amp Modules. Todd then covers the Cabinet Section, and Rack and Insert Effects, which you can use either at the end of your Signal Chain, or in an Effects Loop.

Todd now teaches you how to configure external MIDI Hardware to Control Amplitube, as well as how to use the Built-In Track Recorder, including Editing and Mixing down your Tracks directly in Amplitube 4.

Finally, Todd demonstrates how to use the Built-In Looper to create up to four Audio Loops and Export one or all of them for future use in your DAW or to send to someone else to use in their productions.

If you’re new to Amplitube 4 or an advanced user looking for expert tips, get amped up and watch “Amplitube 4 Explained” now… Your guitar tracks will thank you for it!

This was a fantastic training video from beginning to end. Though I had experienced Amplitube 4 for sometime now I was still able to benefit further.

Very well presented

It appears some products are shipped assuming the user would have been born suckling on a Teac. I bought one such product, Amplitube 4...and it is a great product, but I had no experience with recording digital or stone tablet. I was entering a new world completely blind. I had in fact given up on the A4 program...when I found Groove3. This instructional series is well thought out and presented. There are 16 episodes...almost all have a moment of clarity, I didn't use the installation segment. The Groove 3 videos showed me how in depth A4 in fact is...so, to make my life even easier I wanted to see about getting the videos loaded on my iPad. One email to Groove 3 support (Thanks again, Tony) taught me what to do.

poor video begining

This has somewhat good info, except He could have mentioned the drivers that needed to be downloaded to even hear the amps play. I accidentally found out on my own after some frustration. An important part that was left out.

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

When I was really young, maybe 3 or 4 years old. That's when I got my first (toy) drum set and played it all the time. I was studying viola at 7, piano at 8, and drums at 10.

2. What training have you had?

In college, I received a Bachelor of Music in theory/composition from SIUE, and a Bachelor of Science in recording production and technology from MTSU. Working in big studios in Chicago after college, I learned as much if not more working as an assistant/2nd engineer, often repairing/troubleshooting problems on the fly. It better equipped me to work independently AND with others.

3. When did you get into recording?

In high school. My punk band saved all our pennies to record at an 8-track studio for $10 per hour. I was fascinated by the power of multitracking, overdubbing, mixing, etc.

4. People you have worked with/for?

I've worked with commercial music producers and talent for TV and radio commercials, many of which were national/international brands. I also worked with bands and artists in the studio, including the Frogs, Kelley Deal, James Iha, Sebastian Bach, any many others. As a tech support engineer, I've helped thousands of customers. I worked directly with several high profile customers, including John Fogerty, Bruce Swedien, Oscar Petersen, John Tesh, Andy Sturmer (Jellyfish), Greg Lisher (Camper Van Beethoven), Chris Vrenna, and engineers for Paul Simon, Wilco, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, and ICP to name a few.

Why are you so good at training people?

When I was providing technical support, my approach was not only to solve the problem, but to also listen carefully to the end-user's needs AND explain what the cause and solution of any problem was. Putting technical jargon into more relate-able terms helps. I'm also an adjunct professor at a local university, and apply the same ideology when teaching. Whether you're working with a customer or student, you have to put yourself in their shoes.
